      You can hook up any standard hose to the supplied connection port as long as you have a drain nearby. This unit does NOT have s pump.

      What is room(s) size capacity of the 50 & 70 pint dehumidifiers?   (10 Answers)

      I currently have a Fridigidaire Model FAD704DUD dehumidifier & am trtying to determine the capacity requirement of another Fridgidaire dehumidifier. 1.) What is the "cubic feet" capacity (not pints/day) of the 50 & 70 dehumidifiers? 2.) I would like to know if the dehumidifier can also reduce the humidity from an adjoining room with the door closed? Thank you,

        Answer

        I'm not sure of the cubic feet. I have it in a finished basement that is about 1000 SF and 3 separate rooms. It works fine if all the doors are open, but it won't work pulling moisture from a room with the door closed. They say for it to work most efficient to put it in a room and close that door...but I found it works fine for the whole basement with all doors left open to the rooms. 1000 SF by 10 foot ceiling so about 10,000 cubic feet. I have the 50 pint dehumidifier. But when we were at about 90-95% humidity I had to empty it every 12 hours or so. Now that the basement is about 50% humidity I only need to empty it every 2-3 days.

            Answer

            There is a bit of a lip, and a kind of lid that flaps open when you go to pour. I was able to carry my bucket upstairs to pour outside without spilling. I have trouble carrying a cup of water without spilling, so, pretty effective spill-proof container.

              Yes you can and I did since most of the articles and info online says that they are only expected to last three years or so. I got the 4 year plan.

              Is it normal for a thick, long bar of solid ice to develop?   (9 Answers)

              Had the unit for almost four months and recently a long, solid block of ice has been developing on the back. It doesn't cover the entire filter, but is about an inch tall and goes the length of the filter. This isn't normal is it?

                  Answer

                  I had this same problem with the previous model. It gave an error code EC. On this model that error code is FO. My previous model lasted 14 mos. it ran fine for the first 12 months. I talked with Electrolux and they said it is a bad control board and since it was out of warranty, would not replace the unit. They also told me there are no replacement parts. They did not make any so when a part goes bad you have to replace the whole unit. I did purchase a new unit wit extended warranty. Hope this is not going to be a recurring problem.
